POLITICAL ELECTIONS 2018 - INSTRUCTIONS

Information about the voting procedure may be found in the links Slide_elezioni_politiche_2018.pdf and COME_SI_VOTA (3).pdf).

Attention is once again drawn to Article 48 of the Italian Constitution, under which "the vote is personal and equal, free and secret". Please note that the voter has the obligation to ensure the custody of his electoral material, the transfer of which third parties is expressly forbidden.

In this regard, reference is made to the provisions of Article 18 of Law No. 4959/2001, pursuant to which:
- "Whosoever commits abroad any of the offenses established by the Consolidated Act containing the regulations for the election of the Chamber of Deputies is punished according to Italian law. The penalties provided for in article 110 of the aforementioned Consolidated Act, in the case of a vote by correspondence are meant to be doubled”.
- "Whosoever, on the occasion of the elections to the Chambers and Referendums, votes both by correspondence and in in the last registration seat in Italy, or votes several times by correspondence, is punished with imprisonment from 1 to 3 years and with a fine from € 52 to € 258 ".
